Objectives

TARANTULA’s overarching objective is to develop a toolkit of novel, efficient and flexible metallurgical technologies with high selectivity and recovery rates with respect to W, Nb and Ta. As such, the project will promote (i) sustainable annual supply of secondary W at an amount equivalent to 50% of current EU W primary production, (ii) exploitation of Ta content equivalent to at least 120% of EU annual demand (iii) exploitation of Nb content equivalent to at least 5% of EU annual demand.
